Vi er blot nogle uger fra NFLs draft, der i år afholdes i Cleveland. Herunder løber vi igennem, hvem der lige nu forventes valgt af New Orleans Saints.

Zaven Collins, LB, Tulsa

The ultra-versatile Collins would give the Saints a dynamic second-level defender with pass-rush skills.

Bucky Brooks,

Collins had four sacks, four interceptions (including two pick-sixes) and two forced fumbles for Tulsa in 2020, and at 6-foot-4, 260 pounds, he looks more like a defensive end but moves with the fluidity of the modern-day off-ball linebackers that have become so prevalent around the league. The Saints could also be looking for a QB and even a wideout, but with the best players at those positions already off the board they opt to bolster the defense.

Collins is a huge, three-down linebacker who’ll be able to do so many things in New Orleans’ defense immediately.

Mac Jones, QB, Alabama

If the Saints do re-sign Jameis Winston, Jones would provide an additional option as they try to replace Drew Brees, who’s expected to retire. Jones is a fit as an accurate thrower and good decision-maker.

Daniel Jeremiah,
Mac Jones

Kadarius Toney, WR, Florida

No change here from 1.0, but if a quarterback like Mac Jones is available … Hmm …

Cynthia Frelund,

Elijah Moore, WR, Mississippi 

The versatile wideout with soft hands and outstanding toughness can win from any alignment, working all areas of the field. Not a bad piece to have in the post-Drew Breesera.

Lance Zierlein,

Eric Stokes, CB, Georgia

The Saints are a bit thin at cornerback right now and former first-round picks Marshon Lattimore and Patrick Robinson are both free agents after the season. Stokes is a fantastic athlete with good ball skills who could be a Tre’Davious White-type bargain near the end of the first round.

Chad Reuter,

Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech

The back injury will drop Farley down to this spot, which will allow the Saints to land one of the top physical corners in the draft. The Saints need a young corner to develop in their defense.

Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia

Saints’ horrible capsituation har betydet at de har måttet fritstille en masse spillere, og derfor åbnet mange huller, der skal fyldes. Wide receiver? Defensiv linje? I dette tilfælde kigger vi mod cornerback, hvor Janoris Jenkins er væk, og Marshon Lattimore for nylig har været på kant med loven. Tyson Campbell har nogle lynhurtige fødder, der vil passe godt ind i Saints’ aggressive man coverage-stil.

Teis Joranger,

Kwity Paye, DL, Michigan

After losing Trey Hendrickson in free agency, New Orleans responds by adding another edge rusher with grown man strength opposite Cam Jordan. Kwity Paye is good value this late in the first round.

Josh Edwards, CBS Sports
